Epidemiology can be considered, quite simply, the study of epidemics.  There are several possible definitions of an epidemic.  We define an epidemic as the change in disease intensity in a host population over time and space.  This course concerns itself with (1) the study of the nature of plant disease epidemics, and (2) the use of mathematical methods to better understand and predict epidemics over time and space.
